I just read a record review in Uncut by one David Stubbs. It conserned the release of an album compilation of live tracks from The Fall, one of my all time favourite bands. I felt I had to quote the end of the review here:
"... suggesting that despite Mark E Smith being an absolute one of a kind at absolute odds with the world, The Fall are the very secret essence of rock´n´roll."
Well spoken there, David!
